Sanja Miklin

Teaching Fellow in the Social Sciences

Sanja is an MA Teaching Fellow in MACSS and a PhD Candidate in the Department of Comparative Human Development at the University of Chicago. She is a graduate of Li Po Chun United World College, holds a BA, summa cum laude, from Dartmouth College, has received her MA at the University of Chicago, and was a Graduate Fellow at the Stevanovich Institute on the Formation of Knowledge. She is interested in the production of knowledge about social problems and, more broadly, in both the micro and the macro-level process through which we define and seek to impact the world around us.

In her doctoral research, Sanja focuses on suicide-related research and activism. She explores these through a mixed-methods approach that includes ethnography and interviews, archival research, as well as computational analysis of texts and science article publication data. As a result of her dissertation work, as well as her work as a project manager in her advisor’s lab and the courses she has taken in the MACSS program, Sanja has developed familiarity with a variety of methods and datasets that could be of use to students. 

She has developed a strong passion for clear writing, productive use of theory, as well as advising and mentoring, and enjoys working with students to help them achieve their goals in these areas.
